PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

What happens when you mix up two bandits who may or may not have a thing for each other, a mourning husband, his wife's corpse and a seductive nurse with a brutal, if bumbling, police inspector? Equal parts Austin Powers shagadelica and Pink Panther-style physical comedy, this farce (from the author of What The Butler Saw) is a deadly serious black comedy which proves once and for all that money is the root of all evil-- and all humor.

The Experts Say...

Atlanta Journal Constitution
by Kathy Janich
November 17, 2000
Kathy calls "Loot" "this season's edgiest and most entertaining theater." She praises everything and everyone, from the cast, the script, the dialect coach, the set, the direction and the artistic director for "picking this project, assembling this team and letting his mates play so wonderfully before us."


Creative Loafing
by Curt Holman
November 23, 2000
Curt sez "Loot" "rarely achieves take-off." He says the Express is wise to treat it as a period piece, as it is dated in the 1960s and would hardly shock us today. He notes that director Stevens "doesn't build up a full head of steam under the show," and that much of the physical comedy "doesn't have much punch."

Just Commit

2.0
The actors and designers for "Loot" did an amazing job.

The director...sheesh...either commit to the camp of the show or steer clear all together. She had great ideas, but no committment. It appeared as if she only did half of her job, afraid to accomplish the true task at hand, and thus tried to do her job safely. Not effectively. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
